The 50 Most Influential Christians in America
[a lost entry reconstructed]
The 50 Most Influential Christians in America according to Church Report Magazine. Notably and disappointedly absent are Tim Keller and Hugh Hewitt. Those
editors readers are just a tad off the mark. A surprise one that I did not know of his faith orientation is Dr. Phil McGraw (and just makin’ the cut).
I don’t know what to make of it with all the fascination with influential people; Barna recently published his survey results about major influencers of American Protestant churches. Will had a great insight on the problem with statistics (and he made me say uncle, cf. comment thread there).
[update: The rankings of this Top 50 list are based on a tally of the magazine’s readers polled, not its editors; See discussion at their message board here and here.]
